Adaptation of Sci-Fi Board Game Among the Stars Now on Android
Polish studio Cublo Games, the company behind the digital adaptation of Brass, has released a new mobile adaptation the popular sci-fi board game Among the Stars.
Among the Stars tasks players with designing, building, and maintaining their very own space station. Far beyond what humans are capable of today, this space station will need to have a lot more than just the basic necessities. Players will be able to build marketplaces, offices, temples, banks, and much more using the game’s 120 different cards.
Of course it wouldn’t be much of a sci-fi game without aliens, and players in Among the Stars can choose from 8 different races. Beyond just appearance, each race has their own special skill that can factor in to a player’s strategy for the game.
The game features a single player campaign mode that pits players against the AI and multiple multiplayer modes. The game’s cross-platform online multiplayer mode is designed for 3-4 players and features asynchronous play. Players also have the option to play the game using its local multiplayer mode.
Among the Stars is $4.99 and does not contain any ads or in app purchases. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description and a trailer with more information:
Imagine a distant future. A once peaceful galaxy has been torn apart by war. Alien races fight for power and dominance. And then a new threat appears on the horizon, with the potential to wipe them all out. In the face of this new enemy all races must make peace and unite to survive. You represent one of those races. Your goal is to help build space stations throughout the galaxy, to help promote trade among the races, strengthen diplomatic relations and help defeat the new threat you all face. However, your most important task is to make your space station the greatest of them all. Among The Stars will allow you to select locations through card drafting, and use them to build your station, scoring victory points based on the placement. Construction lasts four years, and the alien race with the most points at the end wins.
